I don't use Chinese, but I do use Thai, and it
requires some hacks to get going.  I've even written a
HowTo for it, but it won't help you because it is in
Thai ;)  Firstly, sounds like you are missing the
necessary fonts.  You need to edit lts.conf so that
XFS (font server) is used and all fonts from the
server are available on the clients.  Secondly, edit
the /etc/X11/fs/config file, comment out the 
#no-listen = tcp
line and restart xfs with service xfs restart.
Boot your terminal and see if that helps.
For keyboard switching, I manually hack the necessary
XFree lines into /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/rc.setupx so that
it looks like this:
Section "InputDevice"
       Identifier  "Keyboard0"
       Driver      "keyboard"
       Option      "XkbLayout" "${XkbLayout:-"us"}"
       Option      "XkbOptions"  

BTW, I submitted a patch for this a while back (to
allow XkbOptions in the lts.conf file) but it never
made it into the main tree.
Hope this solves your problems.

work. But when i turn 
on the openoffice writer,
i can't see the menu of openoffice writer. I only see
F____  E____  
V_____ ....... and i can't
switch to any chinese typing server. That means i
can't input any 

I have checked the server. Everything works fine. I
